Subject: What's the problem, Joe?
Another oversimplified movie about race and how everyone is the same underneath the skin. A white man with periodic appearing eyes (you'd have to see the film in order to fully understand what I mean) has an inner racist conscience wanting to beat up anyone with funny looking skin, but luckily, Mr. Narrator straightens everyone out. Pretty straightforward, but horrendously animated.
